thanks for the info!
Ellis beat Schnack, Tatsuno, Sanchez -.-
And Tsay's hardest game was against Chang!
I knew Hemm wasn't bad, I saw her at Pomona summer circuit,
but she beat the #1 seed?
Some crazy results here
, I'd rate Radeva battling close against Ramos also...crazy!
Dunno if Radeva is going to start at singles, though. I dunno about Davis and Goransson, are they any good?
Anyway, this Tsay..she bagelled Hardebeck today..wonder what her choice will be..
I think Tsay has pretty much written her ticket to Stanford. Given that Stanford has up to three scholarships, I would say Tsay is good enough to get one of them. Given her results I would be surprised if she was passed up.
Chang is a bit of a mystery to me. I have seen her play and frankly really not that impressed. In my opinion she will never be successful (90% win average) at any spot higher than No. 5/6. She could potentially play No. 4 for California but I think that's a big mistake...that's basically guaranteeing opponents an easy win at No. 4. However Chang has played tough against McKenna this year and I wonder if her game has improved. She'll definitely need to compete for playing time and keep her scholarship.
Radeva should be able to crack the line-up as there are two open spots in the starting line-up. I imagine Goransson has the other spot sewn up. Davis' game will get better in college, but Radeva will beat her out for a starting singles spot. I think Davis will be used primarily as a doubles specialist or No. 6/7 in her career at Cal (kind of like the former Jessica Shu). As for Siwosz, I imagine she will be used primarily for doubles as well. She has shown improvement since her Baylor days and I would say she has a legitimate shot at singles but given she is a senior I doubt Coach Augustus would invest a lot of playing time in her (it would be wiser for a freshman to get experience).
The problem with Cal's bottom three is I think they are at a somewhat similar level (Chang, Goransson, and Radeva). I'm hoping that Goransson will step it up. Cal's single line-up will probably be 1. Juricova, 2. Cossou, 3. Andersson, 4/5. Goransson, 4/5. Chang, 6. Radeva, 7. Davis, 8. Siwosz.
Doubles will probably be 1. Andersson/Juricova, 2. Cossou/Goransson, 3. Davis/Siwosz
Cal is going to have to hope they sweep No. 1-3 consistently against the top teams. The last two years they could get wins anywhere, which allowed them to come back from losing the doubles point. I miss Bobusic and Ilckinas already.
